The price for electricity is difficult to estimate when comparing one company to another. Often, only one rate is shown in advertising but there are actually three rates; one for 500 kWh, one for 1000 kWh and another for 2000 kWh. The number of kWh each home uses varies from month to month. The method I used for deciding which energy company was best for me was by computing my monthly average kWh for each month over the past two years. I made a spread sheet into which I could enter the three price rates for each company (500, 1000 and 2000). For LOTS of different plans for LOTS of energy companies, I computed my cost for energy for one year based on my historical average kWh per each month of the year. 4Change Energy offered the lowest rates for my usage. When comparing companies, be aware that some companies use step changes in price between 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh while other companies use interpolated changes in price between 500, 1000 and 2000 kWh - it's really time-consuming to compare prices between energy companies!

I HAVE BEEN WITH 4 CHANGE EVERGY FOR 5 YEARS. THEY DON'T GO UP ON MY PLAN THEY ALWAYS OFFER ME LOWER PLANS WHEN MINE TERMINATE. THIS TIME I GOT A $50 GIFT CARD AND A LOWER RATE. THE SERVICE HAS BEEN GREAT AND I WILL BE WITH THEM ANOTHER FIVE YEARS IF I AM STILL ON EARTH.

They lied to me about the rate when I signed up, I ask them to send me the terms and condition, confirming the rate that we agreed to three times before it switched over, they never did, I had to call them after I was switched over to find out the flat out lied to me, I ask them to check the recording of the conversation of the call when I signed up, they just laughed at me, of course I asked to switched back as soon as possible. These people are out and out liars, if they tell you it is raining outside, you might want to confirm that.

It’s hard to distinguish one company from another in the very competitive Greater Dallas area utility (electricity) billing companies. Over the long term, they all even-out with not a nickel’s worth of difference among them. So, how do you choose? You choose the company that makes life easy for you – a community based company that makes charitable contributions in your behalf, makes it easy to do business with, talks in plain English to simplify things, and even makes it fun to do business with them. A company that has really good people and great customer service. That company is 4Change energy. I’m a very happy customer of theirs, who had an issue with an expired credit card on file with them. I dealt with Tina Collins in their customer service department. Tina Collins was very good – very professional, excellent word choices, never got flustered, and really kept her composure. That was impressive as I’m sure I gave her a pretty hard time!

We moved here from California 10 years ago, and after getting ripped off from the other well known electric companies (3 in total), I am pleased to see a bill from 4Change Energy that reflects a reasonable amount. I recommended them to my tenants but no coverage area in that area code, please check them out they are by far the most reasonably price service ever!!!

I saved a little over $26 my first full month of service (643 kWh) in changing services and I know that some of the money goes to a charitable cause, thank God. Ask what the Company Rate plus the TDU delivery rate will be.

RIP OFF!This company offered a rate of 11.6 but then they "passed through" (i.e. passed on to me) the TDU charges and the effective rate became 14.5. UNBELIEVABLE!

I have had 4Change Energy going on 2 years now, and i have never experienced any issues with their service, rates and customer care team. I pay month to month, auto bill pay. My highest bill to date was this past January and it was only $115. I stay in a 1000 sqft town home that is two stories. I recommend this company to my friends and give them a great review.

I could almost copy and paste the first review.. THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO US! I have not received a bill since October, no one answers any kind of phone call, and woke up to no power.. We signed up for online automatic billing, we should NOT be having this issue. We have called every single number on their website. We got connected to a person once and they asked us to hold and hung up on us. THIS HAS HAPPENED BEFORE!

Worst company I have EVER dealt with. I signed up for a 6 month contract at 8 cents per KWH and ended up paying 14 cents per KWH. Company was a complete scam. Every time I'd call and dispute the bill they'd blame Centerpoint for the TDU delivery charges being so high. No one could give me a direct answer as to why my bill was over $100 more than it should be each month. Most aggrivating company I have ever dealt with and dispite having to pay termination fees I have finally gotten away from this company and will never use them or recommend them again. They also have ZERO customer service center, so in order to get someone on the phone you pretty much have to tell them you're signing up for a new account. Also the $100's they overcharged me more, never did they refund me or offer to waive my termination fees. Biggest joke of a company.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
